When you get drunk and leave your lights on over night what are you doing to get it started?
I do carry a jump pack for people that get drunk and vaseline for the real drunk ones...

No red heat shrink on the two positive wires for identification and no lock washers for the positive or negative post nuts, and they are not in safety as no threads exposed after the nuts🤷‍♂️.
Also that’s a lot of load for that post(4 large load wires).

It's nice to see I'm not the only one who does this. I've have been running AGM's in parallel (sometimes mismatched) for 25 odd years. No BMS, "wrong voltage" and I still get 5-7+ years out of a battery.
Currently I have the same duracell agm as my main and an odyssey as aux. I do however have a 300amp relay separating them (added it after my last trip. left the key on for 3 days. oops). In my tow/camping rig, I ran 3 in parallel with my main separated by a relay and never had an issue over time.
This is a bad thing how again?

My Blue top Optima died today :(tomorrow it will be 5 years.
Blue top cost 6/9/2017 $202.95
Blue top cost 6/8/2022 $230.00

Take away -running miss-matched batteries in parallel 100% of the time is not a problem

YMMV🖕
